Wireless issues with a brand new Lenovo Yoga 2 and Ubuntu 14.04

Every so often, the wireless drops the link and then refuses to reconnect. This often happens right in the middle of a session, and I have to reboot both the computer and the wifi router (Netgear AC1750) to get the two to synch. On a related note, I notice that when I boot the Yoga 2 with a 13.10 build (not install it, just run the live image off USB), the wireless will connect to the 5GHz band access point, but if I install 13.10 or install any version higher than 13.10, it only sees the 2GHz band access point. Don't know if these are related.

Any pointers will be appreciated. Otherwise this is a really good laptop with Ubuntu.

Can I suggest that you post the question about the black screen bootup problem (the question with a 1. before it) in another question? This site works best with one issue per question. (Thanks!) –  Azendale May 25 '14 at 5:07
Install the common wifi drivers listed here and connect with wicd. –  user224082 May 25 '14 at 14:44
The link in your 'here' gets a 404 error. –  user285029 May 26 '14 at 5:48
